76 Trombones

Monday, May 06, 2013

I tried looking for a song with the sixth in the title - couldn't find one. But, then I remembered 76 Trombones from The Music Man.

Seventy-Six Trombones by Harold:


Seventy-six trombones led the big parade
With a hundred and ten cornets close at hand.
They were followed by rows and rows of the finest virtuosos,
The cream of ev'ry famous band.


Seventy-six trombones caught the morning sun
With a hundred and ten cornets right behind
There were more than a thousand reeds
Springing up like weeds
There were horns of ev'ry shape and kind.


There were copper bottom tympani in horse platoons
Thundering, thundering all along the way.
Double bell euphoniums and big bassoons,
Each bassoon having it's big, fat say!


There were fifty mounted cannon in the battery
Thundering, thundering louder than before
Clarinets of ev'ry size
And trumpeters who'd improvise
A full octave higher than the score!

    As I was reading the lyrics, I was singing in my mind. To me, this is such a cheerful song. I love the turtle picture.

    I played the sax, and my son is a percussionist.

    I was in my high school and college bands where I played the clarinet, and your blog brought back those great memories. Thanks! Chelsea emoticon emoticon
